A polemical introduction to history by one of the most controversial practitioners working today A critically-acclaimed guide by one of Britain's most compelling and controversial historians. John Vincent has often been accused of political incorrectness, but never in his writing of history, where his work has been rightly praised for its 'verve, excitement, wit and original thought'. In this sometimes contentious study, Professor Vincent goes to the very heart of the complex issues raised by the subject. An Intelligent Person's Guide to History provides a comprehensive examination of the philosophy and evolution of history. It explores the nature of historical evidence, meaning and imagination, together with morality, causality, bias and hindsight. This is a controversial work, packed with ideas. Penetrating, incisive and provocative, it will prove both a vital text for the scholar and a stimulating guide for the general reader. This revised paperback edition includes an account by the author of the critical reception that greeted the book's original publication, and the controversy that it generated.
